In rotating machinery, resonance phenomena occur with large amplitude in the vicinities of the major critical speeds. In this paper, a new vibration suppression method utilizing a discontinuous spring characteristic is proposed. This spring characteristic is achieved using additional springs with preload. This method has the following advantages. (1) In designing these additional springs, we need not adjust their parameter values to the optimal ones, which are determined by rotor stiffness and the system damping. (2) The amplitude of vibration can be suppressed to any desired small level. (3) This method is also effective for nonstationary vibration. Although the method has a disadvantage that an almost periodic motion occurs above the major critical speed, two countermeasures are proposed to diminish it. The characteristics of the vibration suppression are demonstrated theoretically and experimentally.
